Al-FarraSherif.jpg UNT Health Science Center will host a grand opening Thursday, April 27, for its Sleep Diagnostic Center.

The Sleep Diagnostic Center and Laboratory will provide testing for patients who suffer from sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia and narcolepsy.

Sherif Al-Farra, MD, chief of the division of pulmonology in the Department of Internal Medicine, will serve as the director of the new center.

Dr. Al-Farra is a diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and has been treating patients with sleep disorders for more than 10 years. He is also interested in collaborating with health science center researchers who study the effects of sleep apnea on the body and its functions.

“We have been eager to open this new Sleep Diagnostic Center for some time now,” Dr. Al-Farra said. “I’m looking forward to the great work that we can accomplish treating sleep disorders and learning more about them.”

A grand opening program and open house will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Guests will also be able to take a look at the state-of-the art facility and set up appointments at the new center.

The new center is located at 3632 Modlin Ave. in Fort Worth. Call 817-732-4428 for more information.
